2012 Cayuse "Camaspelo" Walla Walla Valley Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1195158 97 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon and 16% Merlot, the 2012 Camaspelo is more refined and elegant than the Lovers release, showing a seamless, elegant profile to go with lots of dark fruits, savory herbs, graphite and hints of flowers. While the nose is terrific, the palate is where this really shines and it's full-bodied, concentrated and ultra-pure, with lots of fine tannin that keep the finish going. (JD) Inner quote mark (6/2015)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Smoky raspberry and cassis bud on the nose, lifted by an enticing orange zest perfume. Silky and seductive in the mouth, with compelling floral perfume and a suggestion of raw meat to its vibrant, pure berry flavors. Finishes with noble tannins and outstanding perfumed length. (ST) Inner quote mark (11/2015)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark There's no other area this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (84%) and Merlot could come from than The Rocks. Wafting aromas of earth, mineral, green leaves and funk accent the variety's dried herb. It's soft in feel with elegant tannins and abundant savory flavors, simultaneously distinctive and delicious. (SPS) Inner quote mark (9/2015)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Fresh and expressive, supple and round, with juicy red berry and spice flavors, hinting at sage and floral notes as the finish lingers enticingly. (HS) Inner quote mark (6/2015)

K&L Notes
